Olivia Wilde In Marchesa – 2011 Golden Globe Awards

Best Marchesa Award
What an amazing way to kick start the 2011 Golden Globe Awards.

“House” actress Olivia Wilde looked breath-taking on the red carpet wearing a Marchesa strapless gown.

Her chocolate brown gown was embroidered with gold sequins sparkled as she glided down the red carpet.

Normally I would’ve loved to see a star in this type of gown wear their hair up, but Olivia usually wears her hair up so I like that she switched things up for this occasion.

She set the bar high. I hope others will follow.

Olivia showed off her Christian Louboutin ‘Bridget’s Back’ gold ankle boots on the red carpet.

    Have any of you seen the shoes she wore with this dress? They are positivly the worst shoes she could have picked. Horrible – they ruin the look for me.

    BDOTW!!! She is stunning and her hair is beautiful. This dress is so princess-like. I love the look from head to toe

    Love it. Love her. She is soo gorgeous. My favorite lady of the night. And her heels? They were to die for.

  4. D January 17, 2011 at 11:48 am #

    nice. but boring………. feel like ives seen different versions of this before thousands of times.

  5. Jess January 17, 2011 at 11:23 am #

    sooooooooooo beautiful! I’m glad she wore her hair down, she still looks event appropriate but not too stuffy or severe.

  6. Andreea January 17, 2011 at 10:56 am #

    I reallt did not except to see this kind of dress on her,but i must say i love the way she looks in it ! Then again,the hair is just not appropriate for this dress.

  7. nicky January 17, 2011 at 9:36 am #

    this dress has been done way too many times. olivia needs to try something different despite looking gorgeous. her hair looks messy =S

  8. mochababe73 January 17, 2011 at 7:28 am #

    I like the hair, but it’s not right for the dress.
    The dress looks absolutely beautiful on her. Pretty woman in a beautiful dress.

    Queen Olivia rules.

  10. Elle_gb January 17, 2011 at 3:07 am #

    Wooooo Miss Galaxy!!!!! she just takes me out of space beautiful!!!

  11. Shaina January 17, 2011 at 2:30 am #

    My heart skipped a beat when I saw her in this gown. I agree that we’ve seen dresses in this silhouette many times before. But it gets better every time, so why not?

  12. msd January 17, 2011 at 1:01 am #

    Sorry but I’m bored by this. We’ve seen this dress and this silhouette a *million* times before.

    • Alina January 17, 2011 at 2:21 pm #

      Yes,I feel the same.
      She’s worn this type of dress at least two times before + I really really don’t like the hair.

  13. Martin January 17, 2011 at 12:50 am #

    Her dress is breathtaking!! I absolutely love Marchesa!! Her hair has to go! Its looks so dry. She should have worn it up. Her shoes are beautiful if they were a different color, but does not go with the dress.

  14. mohamed majid January 17, 2011 at 12:45 am #

    i wish you highlighted of her shoe choice too.. that shoe looks glamorous.. she rocks the dress

    • Fashion Critic January 17, 2011 at 12:56 am #

      trying to go through a 1000s of pictures.

  15. smolls January 17, 2011 at 12:22 am #

    Wow — what a great way to start! That dress is amazing & Olivia looks fantastic!! BDOTW for sure!

  16. Amanda January 17, 2011 at 12:03 am #

    Horrible hair!

  17. justme January 17, 2011 at 12:02 am #

    I adore Olivia’s style, I do so much that the thought of her in that Reem Acra dress at the 2008 Emmys still makes me smile to this day.
    HOWEVER I’m not loving this look. It’s a beautiful gown but everything else is a let down. The shoes are just tragic and I feel like the bangs are enough of a switch up. She needed to put her hair up.

  18. Incroyable January 17, 2011 at 12:00 am #

    GORGEOUS!! BUT would have loved if she did something different with her hair.

  19. LizLemooooon January 16, 2011 at 11:55 pm #

    Her hair really, really ruins it for me but at least she has poise with it.
    I hope she works it more on the red carpet, someone like Camilla Belle would have done this gown justice.
    Anyway best so far but I hope she’s not as good as it gets…

  20. robbie January 16, 2011 at 11:52 pm #

    j lo will be p*ssed, this dress just screams j lo to me not a fan, and her shoe choice *grabs a bucket* hideous garish “ghetto” gold *cringes*

    • Linda January 17, 2011 at 12:19 am #

      Oh, my gosh, you’re so right about JLo!

  21. The Dame January 16, 2011 at 11:46 pm #

    Absolutely stunning!

  22. María January 16, 2011 at 11:40 pm #

    You can’t say shame about the shoes on this one!!!
    love her!

  23. Firefly January 16, 2011 at 11:37 pm #

    OMG love, love this

  24. Mahima January 16, 2011 at 11:35 pm #

    love love.
    why is she always the first one on the red carpet?

  25. Elaine January 16, 2011 at 11:31 pm #

    The dress is to die for but i cant get on board with the hair! gonna be a late night – il eagerly await your updates 🙂

  26. andy January 16, 2011 at 11:30 pm #

    She is beautiful!!! And she showed her shoes and they are absolutely gorgeous as well!!

  27. Ben January 16, 2011 at 11:28 pm #

    I HATE her hair! It is sooooo limp and ugly.

  28. Laura January 16, 2011 at 11:27 pm #

    Amazing. And one of the first on the red carpet. This is going to be a contender for best dressed. With a dress like this, I don’t know how the nominees are going to top it.

  29. Erik January 16, 2011 at 11:26 pm #

    So amazing! I really can’t wait for the rest! Sad enough I have to go to bed now but school will start at 11 in the morning so I’ll have loads of time to see all the looks before going to school. Catherine, thank you so much for covering this event (and all the other great events too)! Good luck with staying up, if you’re going to! xx

  30. df January 16, 2011 at 11:24 pm #

    I REALLY do not like this look.
    This dress reminds me of prom and Taylor Swift. And the hair does not look good at all. 🙁

    • Linda January 16, 2011 at 11:32 pm #

      I don’t dislike it as much as you do, but as someone else said, it seems like we’ve seen this style of dress on her before…the hair isn’t helping.

  31. Denise January 16, 2011 at 11:23 pm #

    Absolutely gorgeous. Breath taking. BDOTW contender for sure. She sure raised that bar high and I hope we get some great looks tonight.

  32. Ashley January 16, 2011 at 11:20 pm #

    The dress is beyond beautiful but her hair kills it for me. I would have liked to see soft curls or a loose bun

    • Aisha_Iman January 16, 2011 at 11:34 pm #

      Completely agree! The hair is such a letdown on an otherwise flawless look.

  33. Hannah January 16, 2011 at 11:19 pm #

    There’s no denying this dress is insanely gorgeous! Would’ve loved her hair to be a bit more polished though.

  34. Ally January 16, 2011 at 11:17 pm #

    LOOOOOOVE! She looks amazing. I’m a sucker for sparkly though. 🙂

  35. Raquel January 16, 2011 at 11:17 pm #

    Lovely dress, but I feel like I’ve seen Olivia dresses in this dress – although in different colors – a dozen times.

  36. niya January 16, 2011 at 11:13 pm #

    agreed agreed and agreed – she looks stunning! and the fringe is growing on me. I’m also going to pretend that she has a fabulous pair of strappy shoes on underneath.

    • Martin January 16, 2011 at 11:28 pm #

      She’s wearing the most ridiculous pair of Christian Louboutin spiked gold open-toed booties with this dress. Just saw her lifting up her dress and kicking up her heels on the red carpet. Pass.

      • Jones19 January 16, 2011 at 11:45 pm # I love the shoes!

      • june January 17, 2011 at 12:48 am #

        i wish i didn’t know about the shoes — they don’t work with the dress at all and just ruin it

        • perfumeorpoison January 17, 2011 at 9:42 am #

          I adooooooorethis look. Total goosebump moment.
          The shoes are absolutely awful with this so I’ll just pretend I didn’t see that photo! 🙂 he he denial is great..

      • Estranged January 17, 2011 at 6:07 pm #

        I was waiting for someone to point it out. The dress is fabulous and the shoes are spectacular, but together they just don’t work.

  37. Hannah January 16, 2011 at 11:12 pm #

    She looks so beautiful! I am even more excited now abotu what is to follow. Imagine, she isn;t even (I dont tihnk) nominated, or nto at elast fro one fo teh main movei awards, I cannot contain myself.

  38. misschatty January 16, 2011 at 11:12 pm #

    • Carolina January 17, 2011 at 12:05 pm #

      I thought the same thing 🙂

  39. Marvel January 16, 2011 at 11:12 pm #
